Cape Grace has one of the most enviable locations in Cape Town's V&A Waterfront, with Table Mountain guarding the rear and waterways of the harbour to the front. The hotel sits on its own private quay with a working dock on one side and an international yacht marina on the other.
Dine wherever the mood takes you at Cape Grace - oysters and champagne on the pool terrace, soup and snack lunch or sweet afternoon treats in the library, a romantic meal in your suite, or a la carte in Signal Restaurant where classic dishes are touched by South African flavours. A favourite al-fresco spot is beside Bascule Whisky, Wine and Cocktail Bar, flanking the private marina. The 56-foot yacht 'Spirit of the Cape' is moored alongside and is available for charters, sunset cruises and even a whisky tasting.
The Spa at Cape Grace has its own menu of temptations, with innovative treatments incorporating African products and ancient methods. Sweeping views of Table Mountain, Cape Town city skyline and the yacht marina will send you into sensory pleasure overload.
Each of the 120 luxurious guest rooms and suites, all with French doors opening to views of Table Mountain or the working harbour, are decorated differently. What they all have in common however, are fresh flowers, robes and slippers in the dressing room, separate bath and shower, fully stocked private bar, flat screen TV, iPod docking station, room safe and complimentary wireless connectivity.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.

The rate excludes the tourism levy (per room per night) which is payable directly to the hotel.

The Cape Grace is fabulous. Very attentive and welcoming staff make it a real pleasure to stay there. We were worried about the rooms we might get but they upgraded us to a two bedroom suite which was fabulous. A lovely Hotel.
The Cape Grace hotel was lovely and the staff so helpful and the position was great.
Cape Grace - Excellent. The perfect location on the waterfront and easy to access from the motorway. A great room and the staff extremely helpful, the local chauffeur service was really good.
Cape Grace and Lion Sands River Lodge both excellent, in both location, service and attention to detail. Best holiday ever.... thank you.
Cape Grace - beautifully decorated mix of old and new, fantastic service.
The holiday was fantastic - we all had a great time and will definitely go back to South Africa for a longer holiday asap. In terms of feedback, I cannot praise enough the service from your team - repeat business definitely on the way, when we go back.
Cape Grace was brilliant - great service, food etc - truly world class.
Protea Quays at Knysna - clean, efficient, bit like a Premier Inn - but OK for the money and well located for restaurants etc
Ocean Eleven at Hermanus - really great small private hotel - huge rooms, fantastic views, really good staff and generally very good value - would recommend and stay there again on another visit - the apartment was massive and the suites lovely - also free port and sherry, chocolate, crisps etc - as per the Cape Grace.
Everything went as planned - thanks again.
What a fabulous holiday ! The package Anneli put together worked really well in line with our own requirements.
The Cape Grace was truly outstanding, from the initial welcome to the high class standards shown throughout inc rooms, restaurants, car shuttles (BMW 7 series), bars, friendly staff.
Ocean Eleven Guest House was also fantastic, even if we only stayed one night ! Great location, rooms with exceptional space, helpful and friendly staff.
We got back Tuesday - everything was wonderful. We really enjoyed staying at Cape Grace Hotel ... the standard was exceptional - food, rooms, staff all fantastic.
Shamwari was amazing - saw all the animals we expected to see ... our grandchildren were thrilled.
So thank you for arranging everything for us - it went very smoothly.
Just a short note the thanks you for organising what turned out to be the best holiday we have ever had.
Madikwe Safari Lodge was perfect. Annette’s birthday could not have been made more special, never mind the cake, they brought in a choir for her, she was in tears. The next day when we checked out they brought out the choir again and I nearly was. Klein Oliphants was brilliant. Cape Grace was fabulous as was our meal in Baia. I could get used to this.
Please rest assured that we will be singing your praises and recommending your services every chance that we get.
